Sandra Gibson & Luis Recoder

A live collaborative cinematic work that reflects and refracts the role of projectionist-as-performer in the standard theatrical projection of the 35mm changeover system. Two projectionists perform within the cinema theater to critically unmask the otherwise masked cinematic apparatus in a dazzling abstract play of sights and sounds. The dual-projection changeover system in which two identical 35mm projectors alternate back-and-forth in their restorative reassembly of feature-length films provides the theatrical platform and oblique precursor to historical movements in the field of Expanded Cinema. Sandra Gibson & Luis Recoder have collaborated on various expanded cinema projects since 2000. Their performances and installations have taken place at the Whitney Museum of American Art, Sundance, Serralves Foundation in Porto, Oberhausen Film Festival, and Viennale in Vienna. Cosponsored with the CCA.
